Today, host Stephen Kallao is joined by blues royalty – It’s Cedric Burnside. He grew up in Benton County in rural Mississippi, where he was raised by his grandfather, the late bluesman, R.L. Burnside. We’ll hear about his childhood, living with his granddad in a sharecroppers’ house with no running water, and how that environment shaped his latest album, Benton County Relic. Cedric Burnside brings his modern hill country blues to the World Cafe studio, live.

World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 /  streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org  / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App from the App Store & Google Play.
